GAO Investigating the Use of Retaliation Towards Special Education Students

Forwarded message from Advocate Anna Moore:

Fellow Education Advocates: I will keep this brief. What began as an investigation into the use of Restraint, Seclusion and Corporal Punishment in our public schools has just expanded into an investigation into Retaliation and Coercion. This was due to a flood of emails from parents (and teachers) from across the country describing retaliation.

Any individual, parent/teacher/student, who has experienced Retaliation or Coercion should immediately email their story to the individuals below [at the Government Accountability Office].

Every single email is being reviewed.

You must provide your name, address (including county and state), and phone number. Do not send attachments.
